However, the day I was fired a subpoena was sent to the wrong office by another paralegal who had been there for over a year. And you had to search case folders for the name of the opposing counsel since they didn't enter it the case management software and my attorney held the files hostage. Also, my attorney would just drop docs from one case into another, instead of using standard form docs, so misinformation was all over the files.
I understand it. Paper cuts aren't that bad, in the end, when you consider that the alternative is 'flipping' through hundreds of documents that are entered into a computer, which are only accessible by craptastic proprietary software that crashes at least once a day, where the documents have seemingly random 3-4 letter long designators which make no sense, are scanned into the computer in the form of (sometimes accurate) searchable text that doesn't correspond to the actual document, thereby nullifying the entire purpose of using a searchable text when you end up having to read the original document anyway so you can properly cite them.
And when your boss tells you to jump, you not only ask "How high?" but "Off which leg?" and "Shall I try to touch the ceiling?"
You deserved to get fired but who the fuck would want to keep working there?
